Loved this aquarium! It is pretty pricey but well worth it. We went to the Gulf exhibit, and Caribbean exhibit. We also saw the Dolphin Bay show which was entertaining and made my daughter saw, "I want to protect the dolphins!" There are multiple chances to touch different marine life, including jellyfish, sting rays and even the little sharks! We also enjoyed the Wild Flight show which introduced us to some new animals. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. You could probably spend all day here.

The aquarium was amazing. The colors and exhibits were breath taking. Very nice layout. Some exhibits were outside by the bay which was nice. The shows were phenomenal. Lots to see and interact with, you can spend an entire day here easy. I was also pleasantly surprised by the restaurant. The prices were comparable to McDonald's.

We had a blast. My family hadn't visited in awhile. There are so many new renovations that happened since last we visited. The parrots were beautiful and one of the employees told us a little bit about Mia. The escalator to the top floor was so nice. My mom uses a scooter to help get around and the Aquarium even have it accessible for her to enjoy herself as well. The aquarium is so worth the time and everyone is so friendly. Stopped at the gift shop for a souvenir. Super clean. And the dolphins stole the show. Definitely will recommend for all ages...

I had such a great time here. My 2 year old had a blast. I loved the fact that everything was Go ♻️green. They actually care about the ocean and are big on not using bags or anything that will possibly pollute our ocean. Loved the carribean area. Will be returning to the aquarium really soon πŸ˜πŸ¬πŸ¦ˆπŸ πŸ‘πŸŸπŸšπŸ¦€πŸοΈβ™»οΈ

The Texas State Aquarium was very nice. We enjoyed all the exhibits. We loved the dolphins. The turtle talk was very interesting. They have a splash area for the children. All the children seem to really enjoy it. It is on the expensive side for a family, but worth it.
